The local hacks have been pouring over B.J. Raji’s contract numbers this week and lo and behold, they’ve actually found something interesting. The Green Bay Packers are really only on the hook for $500,000 of the one-year, $4 million contract Raji signed last week.
That’s the amount of Raji’s signing bonus, which is a far cry from the $17.7 million in guarantees Raji got after being the No. 9 overall selection in the 2009 draft.
So the Packers are not only going to make Raji’s fat ass earn his next contract, they’re going to make him earn the right to remain on the team this year. If Raji were to continue his suck-ass level of play in training camp and the preseason, the Packers can cut him and it will only cost them $500,000 or $600,000.
On the flip side, they would save at least $3.4 million against this year’s salary cap (not that they need the room) — Raji’s $3.1 million base salary and $300,000 in roster bonuses. Raji is also due a $100,000 workout bonus, which will more than likely be paid prior to the season.
Wonder if that will motivate Raji. If it doesn’t, you’ve got to think his NFL career is getting pretty close to reaching its end. Just another fat, lazy bastard to throw on the pile of fat, lazy bastards.
There are several ways to report this information…..this way is the best. A reason why I bookmark TotalPackers.
That…and the application of filthy language.
“suck-ass” is filthy language where you live?
Or did I just miss the filthy language because I don’t give a fuck?
“Filthy language” not necessarily related to this article, nor meant to sound prude. This website reports the way fans normally discuss the issues. I love it.
I used to be appalled by the language on this site, but once I could see past my narrow sensibilities, I got the hang of it.
That said, fuck Raji. Cut his fat ass right now. Sign motherfucking Johnny Jolly, bitches.
Serious cracking up out loud over that one.
Some certified BAMFs up in here, let me just say don’t mess around with these Jims.
As for Raji, you done fucked up boi! Yeehaw motherfucker! How can he only be guaranteed $500K? Doesn’t he have to be awarded at least the vet min.? Anyone? Buehler?
This is beautiful news!
